2011 V6 Strut Tower Brace

Looking at doing some light mods to my new 2011 V6, the convertibles of 2011 and the 2012 pony packages come stock with one, there is one on American muscle for the GT but they say it won't fit the v6? Shouldn't the spacing be the same ? And if I'm not mistaken the GTs engine cover sits higher than the v6, anything would be helpful, thanks

Re: 2011 V6 Strut Tower Brace

Remember that the V6 is a 60 deg engine and the GT's V8 is a 90 deg engine. This means that the intake generally sits higher. Now take into account the flop over design of the V6's plenum and you most likely wont have room. Remember that if it did fit the mfg would be glad to sell that feature. If they say it wont fit, then I'm sure thay tried every thing they could to try to get it to fit.

Yeah I kinda figured if anything that would be it, ford parts sells the 2011 v6 convertible stock brace but there is no styling to it, think I'll just have one made, thanks for the help!

On the v6 performance package, it comes with a strut tower brace. You should be able to find one through ford. Here's a picture of mine.

Is that a 2011 or a 2012 ? When I ordered mine the performance package wasn't offered yet, just the 3.31 rear end with the pony package like I got, guess I should have waited!

It's a 2011. Performance package was offered on the 2011. Whoever told you it wasn't offered on the 2011's wasn't being honest with you.
